Ndamukong Suh: Would you want him in Chicago?

If reports are correct, the polarizing defensive tackle will be out of Detroit after the 2014 season-- would you want him in Chicago?

Leon Halip

The Chicago Bears have done an admirable job of rebuilding their defensive line, but is it as good as it's going to get?  Marc Trestman is obviously an offensive guy, but general manager Phil Emery has shown that he will focus on both sides of the ball equally, something that the previous regime under Jerry Angelo never did.

Something else that Angelo and long-time head coach Lovie Smith never did was bring in players with questionable character... but have times changed in Chicago?  Perhaps.

The Bears signed linebacker D.J Williams to a free agent contract in 2013, after Williams had a history of DUI's and failed a drug test (he was suspended by the Broncos 6 game sin 2012, and subsequently released after that season), and many Bears fans wondered if that was something Lovie Smith would have done.

Ndamukong Suh has a colorful history both on and off the field, something that we don't have time to chronicle in this article, and recently, reports have surfaced that he is in his final season with the Detroit Lions.

We don't know the how's or the why's of the rumor, but apparently both he and the team are preparing to move on after the season.

With that said, Suh will undoubtedly come with a hefty price tag, and despite his history of issues, there will be plenty of teams in the market.

With that said, what about Chicago? Should the Bears throw their name in the hat if Suh could be landed without mortgaging their future?
